For the love of frogs, please slow down. On a side note, what is that he is pulling out of his *ss? His own leg? The longer I look at this, the stranger it is.

The Marilyn Monroe hair isn't working for you sweetheart.

Auf wiedersehen

I have packed my bags and I am leaving for a vacation tomorrow. I will be back in one week with many more hideous gifts to share with you. I invite you at this time to revisit some of the past hideous gifts in the archive. Thanks for reading!

Waxing moons

Not exactly the work of Madame Tussaud.

Pushing up daisies

This elephant is apparently having a hard time with this basket of flowers. Would you believe that this is the actual orientation of this figurine? Check it out:

Which begs the question: is this elephant dead? Looks like his friend here is not having a much easier time with his flowers:

Don't my friends and relatives know by now that these ugly things are going to wind up on my blog? A simple gift card to Bath and Body Works will do guys. Really.

Stand 'em up and knock 'em down

When one is trying to be polite about a hideous gift that is received, it is rather difficult to find the right words at the time to thank the giver properly. When I received these salt and pepper shakers from a relative's trip to Jamaica, all I could say was, "Thank you. They are so...whimsical." I graciously left out the part where I say that they look like old pins rescued from a 50s bowling alley. I can be kind you know.

A little vino would be keeno

From the Ted Kennedy Home Collection we have this stunning bank. Even winos need a place to save up for their next bottle.

Now for something more PC (and less JC)

Someone received this unsightly shot glass from Costa Rica. It appears to be a demonic monkey with moobs. Guaranteed to save your liver.

Yeah, yeah, I'll get to it

With the big day coming soon, I don't think that Jesus should be lying down on the job, much less be wearing Beetlejuice bellbottoms. He has to die and resurrect within the next week. C'mon, hop to!

And now back to hideous gifts...

I received this thing as a gift from a relative. It has a total of 32 small holes. I wasn't sure what it was until she told me that it is a votive holder. But I had already found another use for it:
